Rembrandt: Portraits and Prints

  • Norton Simon Museum (map)

Join art muse Noelle Valentino in exploring the Norton Simon Museum's outstanding collection of prints and portraits by Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669), the greatest Dutch painter-printmaker of the Golden Age. Rembrandt is widely regarded as the father of self-portraiture; by recording his own life and likeness throughout his prolific practice, Rembrandt introduced a new subject-genre for painters and printmakers alike. On view now are twenty-one prints from the museum’s expansive collection of Rembrandt etchings. This intimate but arresting exhibition was organized to celebrate the installation of Rembrandt’s Self Portrait at the Age of 34, on loan from The National Gallery in London.
